Little Pieces in the “Little Crumb”

This week we installed a small collection for the third and newest Miette Pastry Shop in Larkspur.  A Parisian influenced pastry boutique that Meg Ray, owner and baker extraordinaire, founded in 2001.  "Miette" is French for "little crumb".

Charming illustrations and drawings that fit the chic Parisian designed space and local Marin culture were selected by Meg (the best selling author of "Miette: recipes from San Francisco's most charming pastry shop").  One work by 1940s/50s fashion illustrator, Marjorie Ullberg, depicts passengers disembarking from a ferry, and a still life painting of a rose ties back into the overall feeling of the dainty patisserie.
